Ready and Waiting.....

Or as ready as you  can be for Baby!!  So I think we are pretty much ready for the arrival of our Little Miss.  We made a run to Kansas City yesterday for some last minute items, and hopefully that will be the last time we go before She arrives.  I will have to check in Topeka for a couple of things that we didn't find, but all in all it was a successful day.  And it is fun to shop with Tim when he is actually enjoying it!  Looks like he already likes to shop "with" his little girl more than his wife!!

The nursery is set and we LOVE how it has turned out.  I will still be watching for little things to go on shelves (of course), but other than that we are done!  And I know I have said that I will post pictures so that is what you are about to get! I just went and snapped some photos, so here you go....

View as you walk into her room, I can't wait to have actual pictures of her to go in the frames.  We found the crib and dresser (will see in following pictures) at USA Baby in Overland Park. The glider/recliner is from Nebraska Furniture Mart.

New window blinds (great deal at WalMart), and the curtains, they were a great find, $6 a panel from Target.  I sewed the pink ribbon on the bottom, and really like how it turned out.  We are starting to have a few things to put on the top of the cornice box.

We decided to go with a dresser instead of a changing table, so that it could grow with her.  The mirror I found online (can't remember the website), the flowers I have actually had since we moved here 5 years ago, and they go perfectly in her room.  The lamp is from Gordmans (love that place) and then her piggy bank and scentsy has a lavender scent in it now..we will see if that is really a calming scent in a few weeks!

The bedding! Finally, and it was SO worth the wait.  I love how it looks with the dark wood of her furniture!  Like I said before, I ordered it off of  If any of you want to know the exact dealer I went through let me know!  It did take about 12-14 weeks to get it, so order early.

It did come with a pink fitted sheet, but one of our friends made us a couple of crib sheets as well.  The flower matches the flowers of the bedding, it's perfect!

Pretty sure we will be spending plenty of time in the glider/recliner.  The pink afghan was a handmade shower gift from a dear friend.  The side table, candle, and greenery I already had!

Starting the toy collection early, now if we can just make Hunter and Maggie understand that those aren't their toys!  Good thing they just like to carry them around when they do get to them.

These are one of my favorite finds, also from etsy.  They are closet divider, to keep her clothes organized by size. 0-3; 3-6; 6-9; 9-12; 12-18; 18-24.  I think it will be just one small thing that will make our lives easier!

SO excited to play dress up every day!! I would be lying if I said her dresser was empty!  And yea, those are my uniforms on the right side, I am trying to figure out where else they can fit so they are out of her closet.

So there ya have it, a sneak peak into our Little Girls room,!  Now we just need her here to complete it!! 

I still need to get our 36 week picture taken and posted...a bit behind!  As for an update from our appointment last Wednesday, it was pretty short and simple.  Her heartbeat was right at 148 beats per minute and my blood pressure still whole 100/60.  We are so grateful that we have not had to deal with added medical issues or problems throughout the pregnancy, making it so much less stressful and enjoyable!  Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers our we near the arrival of our Baby Girl!  We have an appointment Wednesday, so hope for some progress! We will keep you posted!
